It was a tourney to remember with the heavy Hubbard monsoon storm. I can say all the guys, gals, and kiddos who showed up are troopers and will never forget this day, the 10th tourney LOL! But we're a bunch of smart folks cuz all are safe and we had a GREAT time. And we raised GOOD money for the stocking despite of the monsoon day.
I will let JV fill in the tourney result details because he has the numbers.
The start time got postponed to 10am for safety reason and the weigh in at 12:30. Lunch at 1PM. It was short and SWEET!!! About 15 to 20 of us were under the B Dock cuddled up, sharing stories, drinking diet coffee, meet and greets during the bad storm. The rain was mucho heavy and horizontal so a few of us got our rain gears on and a few got soaken wet but we're all live to laugh and fish another day LOL!
Despite the low turn outs due to the storm, many understood our intention and stepped up BIG TIME with their generosity in donating more hibbies. We (the great RHSA) raised $2,265.00. So we all are WINNERS and I feel honor and super blessed being a part of RHSA and the great Texan Fisherfolks!!!
RHSA raised $9800 before the tourney, so we have surpassed our goal of 10K with the tourney.
Last night, the last year's winner made a challenge offer, he will donate 2000 hibbies and challenge us to match him! He couldn't defend his title due to other commitment but can help with the restocking. Please give a big shout out thank you to GeneC!
I would like to say THANK YOU for everyone who participated. JV has the list of sponsors which he will chime in today with the results. Many dropped their donations in the lunch baskets, but a few came to me to contribute and I want to say THANK YOU to:
Jeff Craft, Austin VIP, Roddy Bieber, The Boyer Boys, Team BigFish Cliff, Team KayakBill Adventure, Mix from Lakeguide Service, the long list of folks who bid at the auction, and all who "quiet" contribute.
We all are WINNERS and we all did GREAT yesterday. I had a blast with my team fishing for 2 hrs and will never forget the day. LOL
Don't forget the stocking is THURSDAY, June 11, 2015. Chaha boat ramp.
Thanks again guys!!! Will post pics shortly
